We will be meeting at our new home, Sharon United Methodist Church. This church is across from SouthPark Mall and is commonly known as the “ski slope” church. The address is 4411 Sharon Road Charlotte, NC 28211. The meeting will run from 6 to 8 pm, gathering and socializing from 6:00, meeting starts at 6:30.
We meet in Room A-17. If you are in the parking lot facing the building, go up the steps to the left and in that door. It is the first room on the left. It looked like there was handicap access, park on the side in a designated space and come across to the far left on the back to avoid the steps.
It’s membership renewal time, still only $25. If you are a prospective member you may visit for the first meeting and then decide about joining.
Jen Hintz of FibroFibers will be talking to the guild about taking
yarn from a hobby to a full-time business. Jen is an indie dyer based
in Concord, and the originator of the Nightfall yarn line. She will
talk about the circumstances that led her to make the leap into
full-time dyeing, and the ups and downs of being a working artist.
There will be sample garments for guild members to see and try on, and
a limited amount of Nightfall yarn available for purchase (cash and
credit/debit cards accepted).

September 3: Heather Storta will be talking to us about seaming – specifically horizontal to horizontal and vertical to horizontal seams. (Supplies needed and any homework will be announced ahead of time.)
